The Adoption Process

 

Applications can often be processed within a day if your references are easy to reach.  SRF’s goal is to make a great match for you and the horse so you can both share a lifetime of enjoyment together.

 

Approval:

 

  • Adopters must be over 18 years old or parent/guardian who will be responsible.

  • Must have sufficient horse care knowledge to adopt.

  • Decisions are based on the applicant's horse knowledge, honesty, the safety of the facility, references (non-relatives), photographs, and fit with SRF's mission.

 

General Terms for Adoption:

 

  • BOARDING: If you plan to board your horse, a lien release signed by the boarding facility. It can be accessed below, faxed or mailed to you.

  • SHIPPING: Shipping is the adopter's responsibility, SRF has a list shippers, if needed.

  • DONATION: SRF asks for an adoption donation, it varies based on the horse. Generally, $350-$1200. An adoption donation is not expected for "Pasture Mates" or “Companion” horses.

  • AGREEMENT: Part of the agreement is your willingness to comply with having your veterinarian complete the Veterinarian Follow-up Form at the time of spring and fall inoculations. Veterinarians do not charge extra to complete this form.  With 4,500 adoptions this is the most efficient way to be sure every horse remains safe in its home. 

  • RESTRICTIONS: Horses adopted from SRF can never be bred, used for embryo transfer, raced, sold, used for commercial purposes, or given away. We are looking for lifetime homes. If for some unforeseen reason an adopter can no longer provide good care for the horse, the adopter is required to find another loving home that must be approved FIRST by SRF. The  potential adopter must be screened by SRF and a new caregiver contract must be completed prior to movement.

  • OTHER: SRF must be notified before a horse moves to a new facility, within ten days of serious injury or illness, and/or in the event of a horse's death/euthanasia.

Please call 609-738-3255 or email SRFadoption@gmail.com if you would like to have

the application mailed to your house.
